There are many questions that surround our humanity, such as who we are, where we came from, what is our purpose, and where are we going. The Bible answers all of these questions. But the Bible also helps us to understand our nature or our substance—of what we consist. The answer to the question of our nature helps to inform our understanding about many other aspects of our Christian life. In this lesson we will look at the three leading views of the nature of humanity and also look briefly at the subject of the origin of the soul.
